Tis year’s mediations were presented by Associate Organist Benjamin Sheen and Organist and Director Music Daniel Hyde on Monday March 26 and Tuesday March 27 respectively. You can listen to webcasts of both of these meditations by using the links below.
Mr. Sheen and Mr. Hyde surveyed the spiritual and theological influences of the music of J.S. Bach on three of the 19th century’s greatest composers. Mendelssohn, Brahms and Schumann were all fascinated by Bach, and many of the latter’s works provided compositional models for the three leading exponents of what became the Bach Revival after 1829.
